Premier League Match of the Week plus Repeats of Liverpool, Spurs and Arsenal games on Kwesé.

KFS has three big Premier League games lined up over the next month.

Manchester City vs Fulham (KFS15 September at 16.00 CAT)

Liverpool vs Southampton (KFS, 22 September at 16.00 CAT)

Manchester City vs Brighton (KFS, 29 September at 16.00 CAT)

Man City are two points adrift of Liverpool, Chelsea and Watford in the Premier League table, but are leading in total goals scored (11). Their opponents for Saturday, Fulham, have scored a creditable seven goals – but have let themselves down on defence, conceding nine. Last season Fulham earned promotion, via the playoffs, thanks to the efforts of Serbian striker Aleksander Mitrovic – on loan from Newcastle – who netted 12 times in 17 games.

This season Fulham spent a 100 million pounds on transfers, stumping up 22 million for the Serbian, who was delighted to officially become a Cottager: “Since the season finished I did not talk to any other clubs. I told my agent that I wanted to come back here and Fulham made a big push. They did everything that Newcastle wanted from them. I am thankful.”

And now Mitrovic has scored in every Premier League game this season, and for good measure scored twice for Serbia against Romania in the UEFA Nations League (also on Kwesé Sports). If Fulham are to upset City they will need to keep Aguero, Sterling and Gabriel Jesus quiet, while hoping Mitrovic can deliver one of those miracle strikes he seems to specialise in. The smart money says Bernardo and David Silva will control the midfield, snuff out Fulham attacks before they begin and provide enough good ball for the strikers to pile on the goals.

When it comes to attacking football much has been made of Liverpool’s ‘fab three’: Mane, Salah and Firmino. Thanks to goal difference The Reds lead the Premier League standings. But it’s their defence which has got them there, having only conceded one goal in four games. Last season Liverpool were a great attacking side who lacked the defensive mettle to lift a trophy. A big Dutchman by the name of Virgil Van Dijk has changed all that. He wins everything in the air, neutralises set-pieces and gives Mane and Salah room to wreak destruction at the other end of the field.

Liverpool last won a major trophy in 2006 (beating West Ham in the FA Cup); and last won the Premier League 27 years ago. That’s how long Nelson Mandela was in prison. It’s so long ago that it wasn’t even called the Premier League. Back in 1990, when Liverpool last won it, it was called the Football League. Could this be their year they win their first Premier League title? Don’t miss our three upcoming Matches of the Week on KFS.
